On a big day in the NFL when the initial bounty gate punishments were announced for some of the key suspects, the New York Jets also made some noise by agreeing to a trade with the Denver Broncos for one of the leagues most widely known players, Tim Tebow. Fans can hate him or love him all they want, but the fact is Tim Tebow has done nothing but win football games since he started playing the game. He has been credited as being the anchor that brought the Broncos out of 1-4 hole to a 9-7 playoff team that upset the Steelers in the wildcard round. If the trade to the Jets goes through, it isn’t likely that Tim Tebow will threaten Sanchez’s starting spot after he recently signed an extension with the New York Jets.
However, after it seemed like the trade was a done deal, some information regarding Tim Tebow’s contract and his cap hit surfaced which the New York Jets weren’t originally aware of. The difference the news had on Tewbow’s cap hit over the next three years was approximately $5 million. Although it’s likely that Tebow merchandise would quickly recover that difference, this has put the deal in serious jeopardy.
